In 2014 François Valentiny founds the Valentiny Foundation in his birth village of Remerschen.
The Valentiny Foundation is an institution of public interest based in the commune of Schengen. It contributes to the promotion of art and architecture in the broadest sense of the term and opens to society through its cultural, social and tourism mission.
The Valentiny Foundation is a place of memory and an archive, where the architectural office exhibits numerous paintings, sculptures, plans and models of architectural creations spanning over
forty years of work.
The drawings and projects created around the globe, whether in Europe, China, Russia or Brazil, bear witness to a life between the worlds and cultures. Thus, it is the distant and the near, nourished by the craft and wine-making traditions of the Moselle region, which together form the oeuvre exhibited in these spaces.
In addition to the permanent exhibition, the Valentiny Foundation allows local and international artists to exhibit their work in the gallery area.
“Every project is an adventure that starts first of all in the head.I consider the first stroke on a white sheet of paper as the beginning of a new fantastic journey.„ François Valentiny
